Lu Mason (part one)
Saturday 04 December 2021
Lu Mason is the co-founder and CEO of Be Me Project, a charity to support girls and women in celebrating that they are uniquely and wonderfully made, by delivering mental wellbeing sessions, and giving them time and space to talk, in schools and communities. She also used to be my hairdresser! I’ve just about forgiven her for moving on from that, not least because what she does now is fabulous, and important, and makes a real difference to the lives of teenage girls not just here in Dorking but around the country.
And Lu’s own story is fairly dramatic - a year after their marriage, her husband Rich was diagnosed with a serious heart condition and fitted with an internal defibrillator…then collapsed a few years later, when their son was just 6 months old, and had to spend 16 months in hospital waiting for a transplant.
Her story of how God was with them then in all kinds of extraordinary ways, and has walked with them since, eventually inspiring her to set up Be Me, is one you won’t want to miss.
